District Attorney Reviewing Information About Bluff City Case
A legal dispute between Bluff City officials and Mayor Irene Wells has not been resolved. The case will now be reviewed by the Sullivan County district attorney general’s office. Wells continues her civil action suit against City Manager Judy Dulaney and others. She claims that the city charter was violated by appointing the clerk, recorder and finance director to the city manager position. A chancery court judge ordered the parties to try and resolve the issue in mediation but last weeks session provided no resolution. According to the city charter, the mayor serves as the city manager in the absence of a paid city manager. The mayor took other legal action against the city besides the civil action when she filed a complaint with the Tennessee Human Rights Commission alleging that racial slurs were used against her but that complaint was dismissed in November. Following failed mediation the Sullivan County District Attorney’s Office, the TBI and the FBI got involved in the Bluff City investigation. Sullivan County District Attorney General Barry Staubus is reviewing information he received concerning the case. (bg)
